I would appreciate any and all suggestions, and any creative ideas to help me! Please, someone give me some idea what to do!
I replaced the original Maid/Matron of Honor about a month ago! I live hundreds of miles from the bride and where the wedding will be. Two weeks ago I was in the hospital with serious health complications and things are slightly life threatning until I have a transplant!! UGH! I did not get to plan a bachelorette party, don’t really know the family to know if they had any kind of a party.
I have NO gift, NO money, and just got back to work. I have a couple pass on gift ideas,…but would it be better to just leave things alone? I just can’t imagine a Maid/Matron of Honor who has NO gift to give. WHAT SHOULD I DO?????
Something old something new something borrowed something blue…. I feel like such a creepy friend…..
Thanks for any suggestions!!

tell her the truth, I’m sure she’ll understand. You don’t need the extra stress especially now, take it seriously, your health comes first. Hope all goes well.

You should tell her the truth about your health problems. Sometimes, the best gifts aren’t the ones purchased, but the ones made. What about creating a scrapbook of your friendship with her? Or – use this opportunity to reach out and get to know her family and ask them to send you photos with descriptions so you can create a scrapbook of her life (I’d check to see if someone else has already done this). Other ideas – what about going to a craft store and getting supplies to make a DIY picture frame and frame your favorite photo! Or make a cute coupon book that gives her “free passes” on the wedding day for things that would really help her out. Definitely stick with something more creative and sentimental. She will not only appreciate that you told her what is going on with you, but that you still went ahead and gave her a beautiful and sentimental homemade gift!
